When you hear the name Dubai, the first thing that must come to your mind is the exuberant lifestyle that the locals live. Everything in the city is exhilarating and the architecture is just inspiring; one visit to the city is not enough and your heart will always crave for more. It is truly a unique experience and the city has a lot to offer. So, without further ado, here are some of the most insane things that only happen in Dubai.
The Exotic Cars
We all know that the people of Dubai have quite a lot of money and one of the things they love to spend their money on are cars. This is why you will see quite a wide range of exotic sports cars in the city. The traffic jams in Dubai must be heaven for the petrol heads!
They Go Crazy With Stunts
It is already a well known fact that cars need four wheels to run. However, the people of Dubai are proving this to be wrong because they love to go on two wheels in their SUVs. It gives them quite the adrenaline rush and they do it simply to feel alive.
A Lotus Ambulance
This is a Lotus Evora, a car that can do up to 186 mph and can go from 0-60 mph in just over 4 seconds. This car would usually only be used in races but the people of Dubai have a Lotus Evora that has been customized to provide emergency medical services.
Keeping Up Traditions
Family bonding has been a long term tradition for the people of Dubai. Originally it may have been going in search of work together as a Father-Son duo on camels; now it is spending leisure time stand-up paddling in the Persian Gulf. Times have definitely changed.
Riding The King
While most people would be too scared to even go near a lion to take a picture, the people of Dubai have made these wildcats their pets and love to ride them. We can only wonder what happened to the part of their brains that should tell them to fear these jungle cats.
Take Your Buddy To Work
Imagine you are on your way to work and looking out of the window, you see a Tiger just casually leaning out of the car next to you. While this would be quite a scary sight in any other country, it is quite normal to see this in Dubai.
Higher Than Clouds
Dubai is known for its towering skyscrapers. The skyline of the city consists of many tall buildings that are among the highest in the world. It must be quite luxurious to wake up everyday and see that you are living higher than the clouds in the sky
The Dubai Miracle Garden
If you have a chance to visit Dubai, make sure that you visit the Dubai Miracle Garden. It is the largest flower garden in the world and for a few moments, you will forget that you are in the middle of the desert. There are over 250 million flowers in the garden!
Mercedes With Diamonds
If the car was not expensive enough when it was first launched, the owner of this car, audi Prince (Amir) al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul-Aziz, decided to go the extra mile and get it completely encrusted with diamonds. There are over 300,000 diamonds on the car and it cost him about $4.8 million
1000 Feet Above The Ground
This is one of the highest tennis grounds in the world, levitating at a height of 1000 feet above the ground. It is located at the top of the Burj-al-Arab hotel and Roger Federer and Andre Agassi were once invited to play a friendly match on this court
Still In Fashion
These Nokia phones may be considered outdated elsewhere in the world but in Dubai, people still love them. The reason behind this love is the price tag that is mentioned below the phones and the diamonds that are encrusted on them.
A City That Gives
If you thought that the people of Dubai have a good life, just look at this picture and see how the horses live. The stables that they live in are better than most houses!
Take Her For A Spin
People in Dubai love their jungle cats. This man in particular loves his cat quite a lot and has taken to driving his lioness around in his speedboat.
Skiing In The Desert
Knowing that most of the city is surrounded by desert, it is quite a wonder that the people of Dubai have found a way to fulfil their dreams of skiing on snowy slopes. They have built an arena inside that even has artificial snow
Mercedes In Pure White Gold
This is no ordinary Mercedes and you won’t see it on the road quite a lot. That is because it is covered in pure white gold and driving around in this car would blind the other drivers on the road because of its reflection.
